I've worked as a full-time, professional tutor for the last ten years.
In the wide field of test prep, my areas of specialty include GRE, ACT, SAT I, SAT Subject Tests (literature and U.S. history), AP tests (literature, language, U.S. history, European history, and government), and TOEFL. I have helped approximately two thousand students improve their scores on all of these tests.
Despite my liberal arts background, I am equally adept at tutoring algebra, algebra II, geometry, and advanced forms of arithmetic. Many of my students consist of adults who need to relearn complicated math to apply to graduate school in the liberal arts or sciences.
Furthermore, I regularly help international executives with their adjustment to American life, providing a strong emphasis on grammar, idioms, and business English. I've also worked as an ESL instructor.
As a writer, I've published twelve books, one of which recently reached #1 in the Amazon Kindle store for a day and a half. This year, the Princeton Review hired me to write and edit an AP European History test prep book for global distribution. To other writers, I provide various editorial services ranging from light proofreading to heavy developmental work. During the autumn, I also help anywhere from twenty to thirty high school students with college application essays.
My personal philosophy on tutors: We must tread the fine line between friend and authority. While many may find this murkiness uncomfortable, it's the perfect place for my particular skills: equal parts personality and intellect. Though it's a cliche, I really do make learning fun.
Before entering the world of education, I worked in the film industry as a professional script reader, in high-tech as a sales writer, and in journalism at The Washington Post.
I was awarded a four-year full-tuition scholarship to The Catholic University of America, where I earned an M.A. in rhetoric and composition and a B.A. in literature in four and a half years. I graduated magna cum laude and was designated a University Scholar for my excellence in the honors program.
I also spent a year studying history and literature at the unbelievably historic and dreamy Oxford University, England. Since all of my "classes" were private tutorials with professors, I can honestly say that I've been on both sides of the tutoring fence. I've worked as a full-time, professional tutor for the last ten years.

I'm happy to extend a $10/hr discount to any students willing to travel to my neighborhood. I also charge the same rate for small groups (maximum of 3) as I do for individuals.
My son asked me to write this review. He said Jason is the best teacher he's had in AP Euro.
Jason's mastery of the subject is evident in how well he teaches it. My son only had a few
sessions with him and yet he was very sad when he learned Jason's leaving. He refused to work
with anyone else. It's very hard to find a tutor who knows his subject inside and out and teaches it so well. His photo & profile matches the man in person. What a relief that was!
My son really enjoyed his session with Jason.
Jason taught my son special tips and rules to improve his writing. Thank you so much. We look forward to our next session with you.
Jason is a great tutor. He just get's it! At least with regards to what it is he specializes in.
If you're taking the GRE don't miss out on this tutor! Good luck!
Jason was very helpful with our son's SAT prep in both math, reading, writing, and overall strategies. We would definitely recommend him again. Thank you Jason!
Jason is helping my son improve his scores on the SAT. Has worked with him for 3 sessions, and he seems to work very well with students. My son is gaining confidence and motivation in working with Jason.
Jason is helping me with my travel book project for over six months. He is patient, fast, efficient, and correct all the time. Since writing a book is a big project, there are many things need to edit before it publish. I am glad I have the help form Jason, who helps me make my writing better.
I sincerely recommend him to people who need help with writing. Saying it from heart, he is the right person that will help you the most with your need.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
